Every now and then, our Project Manager, Kathy, goes back to her roots as a kitchen designer. She had the great pleasure of working with a wonderful couple on their Westport home.
Here's what Kathy had to say about the project:
Without question, the greatest challenge with this year-round family retreat was the limited space. By eliminating two small rooms, a pantry and powder room, we enlarged the kitchen 40% to a total of 171 square feet. Additionally, multiple traffic runs intersect the room, complicating the design.
The homeowners, a couple with three adult children, are passionate about entertaining at their numerous gatherings. With a long list of cooking and food storage needs, and an eagerness to invest in the best quality, it became apparent that Wolf and SubZero appliances were the perfect solution.
Every inch of the kitchen had to be scrutinized in the design. The custom cabinetry with inset construction was selected to compliment the stately coffered ceilings. The beaded openings frame the flush inset Wolf oven and microwave. Tandem installation of the fully integrated 700 Series SubZero refrigerator and wine storage unit added to the custom detailing we needed to create this elegant kitchen.
This lovely home has a 270 degree vista of Buzzards Bay. The driftwood finish on the pantry and wet bar adds a contrasting rustic charm with a design nod to the sea, and ties in perfectly with the sleek stainless steel of the appliances.
